Reviews for the HP Compaq nx7400

80% HP - Compaq nx7400 review
Source: IT Reviews English
Like most, if not all laptop vendors, the introduction of Intel's Core 2 Duo has given HP a very good reason for new models to be dropped into product lines or to give old models a facelift. HP's latest edition to the Compaq line of notebooks is the nx7400, a no-nonsense business machine with an admirably low price. To achieve a low price point obviously some corners have had to be cut; first and foremost is the choice of processor. HP has selected the slowest Core 2 Duo currently available, the T5500. A well balanced notebook, ideal for the smaller business running on a tight budget, but the omission of any serious form of backup option - i.e. a DVD burner - is a surprise.

Some laptops were born to do business. Take the Dell Latitude D620, with its plentiful power, a great screen and comprehensive security options. You can also customise virtually every detail of it on Dell's website. The HP Compaq nx7400 has its fair share of professional credentials too: the sober styling, sensible 15.4in widescreen and comparatively low 2.6kg weight. But there's also the glossy finish on the screen, the 100GB hard disk and the lack of any real security features - all traits of a more consumer-oriented machine. The biggest positive to the nx7400 is its superb build quality. While the keyboard isn't quite up to Lenovo's finest ThinkPad efforts, it's still incredibly solid and makes typing for hours as pleasant an experience as can be.

The economical Compaq nx7400 brings a brand-new form factor to HP's corporate laptop family. Lighter than the nc8230, the nx7400 combines the benefits of a big 15.4-inch wide screen and Intel Core Duo processors with a low price (configurations start at $749). Missing from this equation are some higher-end features, such as biometric security (a fingerprint sensor), dedicated graphics cards, and wireless WAN, found on more expensive portables.

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
